What are your 5 go-to items?
In an age of manufactured taste, and when we can all ‘add to cart’ from top-to-toe, I feel it's really important to feel ‘you’ when dressing. Similar to when I am working with interiors I like to play to the room’s best assets. I like my hands and so I am always sniffing for more cocktail, pinkie ring action, suites of bangles and bracelet collections. For the same reason, I never miss a manicure.
I cherish belts for their ability to withstand all trends. I wear a lot of my vintage Geoffrey Beene and Dries van Noten belts separate to their original outfits.
I adore a flat shoe: Chanel, Dries, Italian slippers.
I love maxi anything. I have even had a maxi made for travelling out of track suiting so I can achieve comfort but still feel like myself while on the plane.
But most of all I am interested in the mashup of contrasts. I am always looking for a way to pair unnatural things together but in a harmonious and thoughtful way. I like to do this with colour, with clothes from different eras, with texture, tones and other treatments; pieces that create an altogether new feeling when placed together.
